VirtualBox 6.1.20 released: Yesterday, Oracle released VirtualBox 6.1.20 as the newest version of their open-source, cross-platform virtualization software that packs several new features and several enhancements.
After three months of toiled work, VirtualBox 6.1.20 has finally been released. It supports the latest Linux 5.11 kernel series for both hosts and guests. This signifies that you can now install VirtualBox on GNU/Linux distros that are powered by Linux Kernel 5.11 and also run the Linux 5.11 based distros in virtual machines.
In addition to this, the VirtualBox 6.1.20 release enhances the support for the CentOS Stream operating system, as well as for the forthcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4 operating system release by ensuring that the kernel module is precisely built and fixes the compilation of the vboxvideo module for the Linux 5.10 LTS kernel series.
The VirtualBox 6.1.20 incorporates several new enhancements to make your virtualization experience better and more reliable. For instance, it adds cloud-init support for OCI export and OCI instance creation increases the compatibility of the e1000 driver thereby allowing to change the network adapter attachments of a saved virtual machine with the ‘
modifyvm‘ command, and adds various audio fixes and improvements.
You can check out the complete changelog for all the details and download VirtualBox 6.1.20 now from the official site, where you will find binaries for several popular GNU/Linux distros as well as a generic, universal binary that one can install virtually on any distro.
